Timelord Iain | 17060 comments I have the hardest time reading books published before 1970 and by authors under 25... been sitting at 23/25 for months now on the 2017 version...

Dragons of Autumn Twilight is the oldest book I've read in close to a decade... and that's only 1984

The rest tend tend to happen naturally for the most part...

That's my thought as well. For before 1970 though, I have Crime and Punishment in my shelves so maybe I'll read that this year. As for authors under 25... I really don't know, even Red Rising by Pierce Brown was published when he was 25 and that's the only one I know of

Timelord Iain | 17060 comments Some people mentioned Eragon to me... and I found a book written by an 11 year old for NaNoWriMo... but it's a hard category to search for...

damn... 11 years old...? xD I guess I can read that when I really have nothing in my TBR...

Petrik (petrikleo) | 1546 comments Btw, for bingo #4, "A book you own and haven’t read yet" what does it actually mean?? Does it simply means that I already owned the book, I haven't read it, but once I've read it, I fulfilled the challenge?

I think so yeah haha. Just motivation to get something off your own shelf that you haven't gotten around to yet.

Petrik (petrikleo) | 1546 comments Question.

11. A book with a one-word title

Does "The Bonehunters" count as one word? or does it really have to be exactly one word like "Tigana"?
